Rex Ryan has fired a warning to the rest of the NFL after predicting a strong season for the New York Jets.

And while he refrained from matching his outlandish Super Bowl predictions (most recently seen in 2011), Ryan is still confident the Jets will be a team to be reckoned with in 2014:

"Watch out for the Jets, man...I'm just telling you," he declared at the league meetings.

The Jets have failed to reach the playoffs in the past three seasons, but have made some strong additions in the offseason, namely controversial quarterback Michael Vick and former Bronco Eric Decker, and Ryan believes the time is now for the franchise:

"My expectations have never changed: I want to win and I expect to win.

"I'll say this: It's time to deliver. It's time to deliver for this community, for New York, for the entire area...

"I'm not running from it. Let's put it that way. I expect a lot out of this football team," said Ryan.

The Jets will need a marked improvement on the last campaign, when they finished with an 8-8 record, and Ryan is under pressure after owner Woody Johnson ruled out any patience in the upcoming campaign recently.

But Ryan doesn't see this as changing his plans, with winning always being the ultimate aim for the 51-year old:

"I feel like i have to make the playoffs.

"Your goal is not to be 8-8. That's not our goal...we want to win.

"Nobody's really taking about us and that's fine and dandy....They're going to," Ryan told the media.

What do you think? How will Ryan and the Jets get on in 2014?
